."Even with little understanding of how it works, hypnosis has been used in medicine since the 1950s to treat pain and, more recently, as a treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, irritable bowel syndrome and eating disorders.

...he infused them with an invisible "magnetic fluid" that only he was able to muster. Thus mesmerized, clients were cured.
